Today I have a picture tutorial for this cute little heart. Just in time for Valentine's Day.
Disclaimer: I live in a basement apartment. And it's the middle of winter. My pictures are dark there is just no way around it. I am by no means a professional photographer, but I feel you will still get the idea from the pictures. Also maybe I am just to hard on myself.
Disclaimer 2: I'm all about finding the best deal, reusing, recycling, thrifting. So A Lot of times I have no idea what I'm working with. This time time I do know a few things because I got them as Christmas gifts.
- an embroidery hoop ( I used a 6in hoop, but you could go smaller)
- a woven fabric
- Embroidery floss. For this project I used J&P Coats. A dark and light color. 3 gradient warm colors. 2 cool colors to off set the warm (so that's 7 colors all together).
- sharp scissors
I then took the darkest color of the warm trio and added 5 straight stitches going into the point of the heart.
Step 6. With the lightest color fill in with straight stitches.
I made my heart into a button. There are lots of other ideas that will work for this to. I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial.
